‘Monster’ paedo couple who got children addicted to drugs and raped them for twisted ‘pleasure’ caged

A couple from Briar Hill have been jailed for 36 years between them for almost 100 sexual and drug offences against eleven children.

Nicholas and Joan Taylor were found guilty of 94 charges at the end of a seven week trial at Leicester Crown Court in March.

Both were found guilty of offences against boys and girls as young as 11, dating from 1996 to 2006.

Their eleven victims were aged 16 or under at the time of the incidents.

The evil pair shot one victim with a crossbow, and used a baseball bat with “The Pain” scrawled on it to threaten the 11 children in a sickening campaign of hate at their squalid home.

Nicholas Taylor, 47, (previously known as Ronald Victor Stevenson), was found guilty of 62 charges including ten rapes, three counts of rape of a child under 13, ten counts of indecency with a child, 11 counts of sexual activity with a child and six counts of supplying Class A drugs.

He has been sentenced to life and must serve a minimum of 18 years before being considered for release.

His wife Joan Taylor, 44, was found guilty of 22 charges, including six rapes, nine counts of indecency with a child and four counts of supplying Class A drugs.

She has been sentenced to 18 years in prison and must serve nine years before being considered for release.

Each of the victims, all of who were abused in the Taylor’s home in Briar Hill, Northampton, gave evidence at the trial.

During a trial at Leicester Crown Court, jurors were told that one girl was injected with amphetamines to get her hooked and then driven to a layby to perform sex acts on a man.

Another boy was made to carry out sex acts on Nicholas and Jean in return for crack cocaine, the court heard.

The court heard how Nicholas was a “bullying” figure, who liked think of himself as a local “hardman”.

But the monster had given lectures at local schools on being a “reformed criminal”, and warned children off taking drugs.

Couple convicted of nearly 100 child abuse offences

A TWISTED couple who plied kids with drugs and used one boy as a human dartboard have been convicted of nearly 100 child abuse offences.

Depraved Nicholas and Joan Taylor formerly of Briar Hill gave youngsters crack cocaine to make them “more compliant” so they could subject them to a string of sex attacks.

The evil pair shot one victim with a crossbow, and used a baseball bat with “The Pain” scrawled on it to threaten the 11 children in a sickening campaign of hate at their squalid home.

Nicholas, 47, and Joan, 44, are now facing jail after they were found guilty of nearly 100 offences committed against 11 victims between 1996 and 2006.

The young boys and girls were all aged 16 or under at the time of the vile abuse.
